First lady's rep blasts 'false' reports about Melania Trump

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that anti-Semitism is on the rise in her country as political leaders, Holocaust survivors and others mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The first lady originally planned to accompany her husband to Davos, Switzerland, this week for the World Economic Forum but instead remained behind.

A woman holds her hand on a plain metal plaque during a wreath-laying ceremony on occasion of the worldwide Holocaust remembrance day in the former Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald near Weimar, Germany, Friday, Jan. 26, 2018. "Yet it is also through our shared humanity that we come together now in commemoration, strength, and love".

"My heart is with you, and we remember", she said.

The United Nations in 2007 designated January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day to mark the 1945 liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request from CNN for comment on the first lady's trip and museum visit.


"The first lady ended her tweet with the hashtags "#WeRemember #AskWhy".

The first lady has had by many accounts a hard start to 2018, facing myriad news stories about a dalliance her husband allegedly had with porn star Stormy Daniels.

Stormy, real name Stephanie Clifford, is said to have romped with Trump in 2006, shortly after the birth of the Trump's son Barron, now 11.

President Donald Trump denies the affair took place, and Daniels denies she received $130,000 from Trump's attorney Michael Cohen to keep it covered up.

Ms Grisham backtracked on January 22, saying Mrs Trump had pulled out of the trip: "It was determined there were too many scheduling and logistical issues".

Last year, when asked about the omission of Jews from the statement, current White House communications director Hope Hicks told CNN's Jake Tapper that "despite what the media reports, we are an incredibly inclusive group, and we took into account all of those who suffered".
